For the month of May our Character Constructions Tag Exchange was “Down on the Farm”, using Catherine Moore’s new line of stamps, Blue Daisy.
I wanted to use several of the stamp plates when creating my tag, including:
Blue Daisy, Plate #2- Outfit & Hat
Blue Daisy, Plate #3- Legs, Lamb & Flower Basket
Blue Daisy, Plate #4- Arms
French Laundry, Plate #10- Head
I always enjoy creating these images because you start with a line drawing and stamp various papers and then color them. This month I used Copic markers to color. There is so much detail in the images:
After putting the different pieces together I then added the rifle and paper flowers to the tag, along with the white picket fence. I cut gingham fabric and ric rac to embellish the card. #characterconstructions #copic @gregsnla
It’s one of my favorite times of the year with spring well into season and the weather feeling so great. There is also a freshness in the air that comes with all things growing. I love seeing the various fruit tress and flowers starting to bloom. Last weekend the cherry blossoms were in full bloom in San Francisco.
For Easter I challenged myself to incorporate as many of the Character Constructions stamps as I possibly could.
This time I chose to color the images with colored pencils. After coloring the images I back them with various colors of cardstock to give them more umph!
The images were as follows:
Mad Tea, #10- Large Egg
Mad Tea, #1- Small Egg Tag
Bird & Bee, #5- Bunny & Carrot
Blue Daisy, #7- Head, Bodice & Hat
Blue Daisy, #1- Arms
Inner Child, #1- Legs & Shoes
French Laundry, #6- Dress
Timekeeper’s Garden, #13- Flower
Paris, #8- Bow
Wishing everyone a very special and loving Easter holiday. May it bring great fulfillment to your heart.
